Track Name: Awake & Dreaming
You had the best of me
According to your idea of how you wanted me
I grew so tired of being so many versions of me I gave up

I lay awake
And I dream about a place I can call home
Where I am free and I can be myself
And I won’t give this up for anything or anyone
I am awake and dreaming

I am giving up the dead
I’m letting go of the fear and I will move ahead
I have found room in my soul
Reverse where I’ve been led
I embrace the worthy thoughts

I lay awake and I dream about
A place I can call home
Where I am free and I can be myself
And I won’t give this up for anything
Not anymore
I am awake and dreaming
I am awake and dreaming
I am awake and dreaming

I've grown tired of this web
Feeling trapped within this end
Not sure what I have lined up
Though I no longer feel the dread
I will chase what is beyond
I will find myself where I am taken
For I’ll be there for a reason

I lay awake and I dream about
A place I can call home
Where I am free and I can be myself
And I won’t give this up for anything
Not anymore
I am awake and dreaming
And dreaming
And dreaming
Track Name: Breathe
I know exactly what I need
Time to wake and face what’s surrounding me
I know that I could be
Back to the days when I once felt so free
Nothing could ever compare to you and me

You make me want to paint the sky
Everything is grey when you’re not mine
And now the storms have faded
This time I don’t want to say goodbye
We should try to keep eyes open wide

This is where
I feel safe inside and can let go at the same time
When I’m here
I am open so I can reach the infinite sky
I thought I couldn’t want you more
But I was wrong
And when we locked in our stare
Then I wanted you more than air

I know just what I came here for
I once was afraid but now I’m sure
I made my mind up clearly
I won’t wait for the answers to find me
I will ride the waves in the ocean of my dreams

This is where
I feel safe inside and can let go at the same time
When I’m here
I am open so I can reach the infinite sky
I thought I couldn’t want you more
But I was wrong
And when we locked in our stare
Then I wanted you more than air

I can only breathe
When you are here with me
And I am so free
When you are here with me
Just breathe

I know exactly what I need
Time to wake and face what’s surrounding me

I can only breathe
When you are here with me
And I am so free
When you are here with me
Just breathe
Track Name: Dance of Love
I’ve been sitting here in the darkness
I carry it on
While I wait for something new
I’ve been longing for a belief in
Something that gives me the courage
To see through

The fear that is trying
To keep realigning
I can’t go on forever this way
Running and hiding

I was afraid of the unknown
I’d resist to let go
My control and what I expected
I spent so much time wondering why
Love didn’t go as I planned
But it was already written

I’ve been focusing on the distance
Between where I am
And where I long to find my truth
I’ve forgotten what it feels like
To be in love at first sight
Everything just fades to blue

And all I hear is talk
That’s all I’ve ever got
And I’m not waiting anymore
You can’t stop the heart

I was afraid of the unknown
I’d resist to let go
My control and what I expected
I spent so much time wondering why
Love didn’t go as I planned
But it was already written

Hey my love I don’t remember you
But I feel like I already know you
And I, I’d love to dance with you all night
Hey my love I like the sound of your name
And I feel like our souls are the same
And I, I’d love to dance with you all night

Hey my love I don’t remember you
But I feel like I already know you
And I, I’d love to dance with you all night
Hey my love I like the sound of your name
And I feel like our souls are the same
And I, I’d love to dance with you all night
Track Name: Parallel
I almost lost hold of myself
And when I met your soul you could tell
Once you were just as clouded as me
You held a mirror so I could see

That I am on my way
As you are on your way
I am filled with lightning
Now my concerns won’t stay
They’ll try to move and sway me
But there’s something igniting

We could make our escape from this empty place
Do you want to?
I can no longer say I’m a lonely soul
You lift me up
You showed me beauty I once knew
Now my reflection looks right at you
And you parallel my heart

There were times when I had felt so insecure
All the colors faded and the lines would start to blur
Deep down we know that we just want to feel alive
Take away illusions and you’re left with what’s inside
It is simpler than I had made it to be
Doesn’t matter what’s behind you tell me what you see
Paralleled embodiment
We watch the rising sun
Overcoming shadows we make ends where we’ve begun
We’ve begun….

I want a story worth to tell
I don’t want to do this by myself
I have searched oceans trying to find
And now I have what I had in mind

I will not hold my breath again
I will not wait for this to make sense
You’ve paralleled my means to survive
Reminding me how it feels to thrive

We could make our escape from this empty place
(Lately I’ve overcome my fears)
Do you want to?
I can no longer say I’m a lonely soul
(You showed me beauty I once knew)
You lift me up
You showed me beauty I once knew
Now my reflection looks right at you
And you parallel my heart
